To Bernard Tschumi, the architecture is the excluded subject and its social activities of traditional architecture. The architecture can’t escape from the movement, time and place in which the activity exists, and he also created a new model of the mark, such as a unique framework consisting of three squares to describe an event, as well as a space in which the activity is taking place.
The core of Tschumi’s creation is the relationship between the “place” and the “incident”. During the lecture, Li Hu will explain the “events”, the indispensable element of Tschumi’s architectural design for us.
